asked the. Home Secretary what is the percentage of cases now in Long Grove mental hospital, Epsom, which are diagnosed as incurable; whether any, and, if so, what percentage of such cases are transferred to other institutions; what number of such cases have been discharged from such institutions after transfer; and whether he will inquire into the reasons for the high percentage of persons who have been discharged after having been formerly diagnosed at Long Grove as incurable?

I am informed that no cases at this hospital are diagnosed as incurable, and the latter part of the question, therefore, does not arise.
